1 Corinthians 12:29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?

If each of us came to know what we have been made, what kind of world would we be living in? This is the question that came to mind when I read the questions Paul asked the Corinthians: Are all Apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? We can extrapolate this into an even broader context to ask the question ‘what have you been made?’

Without an answer to this question, we are very certain to walk through life feeling defeated, bitter, jealous and angry at the many who seem to be flourishing in certain endeavours while we are not.

Out of curiosity, have we taken any time to isolate where our strengths lie? Or have we made any attempts to tap into the mind of our maker to explore for what assigment and purpose our presence on earth is meant to fulfil? This is relevant because God equips appropriately: He gives what you need for the task entrusted to you.

If you think yourself a Prophet when you are a teacher, nothing would seem in alignment because your strengths and gifts will not fit your office. A charge is therefore laid at our doorstep, to discern what we have been made, because it is only then can we begin to work towards fulfilling them.
